Hi Everyone, I hope whoever received my blocks are happy with them.. some of the fabrics were almost vintage..
I won't be able to see my squishy until I return home so please be patient with my response.

I started sewing the 9 patches for the next swap..

Hello 9 patchers I am quite envious of all of you getting to play with your squishy's I am currently out of town and wont be home till after the 4th. Hopefully my mail carrier doesn't decide he needs to make a new quilt. I'll be excited to go through my lovely blocks and see what wonderful combinations i ended up with. I promise i am not avoiding any of you.

Good morning. I’m another one who is out of town. I’ve gotten an “alert” that my package has been “delayed” but something tells me it simply wasn’t scanned when delivered and it’s sitting at my kindly neighbors’ house right now. That’s happened a couple of times. Oh, well, I’ll know soon enough.

I hope all those who have gotten blocks from me are satisfied. If not, don’t hesitate to let me know by PM. I look forward to seeing the blocks in the package for me.

Edited to add: I almost forgot! I checked Etsy and eBay yesterday and Etsy had a single fat quarter for sale of the sloth fabric everyone loves. It’s pricey at about $10 plus shipping but it’s there. The best part is that there are lots of other sloth prints available, too. Do a “sloth quilt fabric” search and it’ll turn up a few pages in. (Btw, I don’t know the seller. An FYI only. )

My package arrived late yesterday afternoon (our mail man comes as late as 6 PM!), but I have not had time yet to take it apart.

We are in the beginning stages of a kitchen and bathroom remodel, so have been searching ideas and materials everywhere online and in stores. Meeting with the builder in just a little bit for our first measurements and discussion. I don't want to make a mistake that I'll have to live with for the rest of my life, lol!

Ack, hope you are right about your package Janice. It's getting ridiculous how frequently USPS deliveries are being delayed, or sent on some crazy, out-of-the-way route to their destinations.

Ditto what Janice said!

I've got my package too! I've looked at all the blocks and they look fine to me! :-) I hope to get to the sewing of the setting for them in the coming weeks.
SBG and all, thank you so much!

I checked all the tracking #s and it looks like Evie has the same delay notice as Janice. I asked for more update information, which often gives you a clue as to where the package might be. Evie and Janice, please let me know when your packages show up. Hopefully soon!

If anyone would like to know, I got the sloth fabric at Joann's a few months ago. I think it was in the novelty quilt cotton section. I tried to find it on the Joann website, but I don't see it anymore

Janice, your blocks looked great! Everyone's blocks looked great actually.
